"Great Hero" Saera (No last name recorded)

Saera was the third of The Four Great Heroes, polar twin of Gjalva, and founder of the nation which bares her name: Saeralore. Her desire to see her people through The Reclamation and beyond with her Halum mastery seated her as the forefront of healing magics, her mastery of which surpassing even that of Ysrai herself. It was that superior mastery of Halum which made The Four Great Heroes eternal on the battlefield, incapable of falling to even the mightiest of fiends.

Physical Description

General Physical Condition

Saera was described as being relatively in shape, enough to sprint across miles of land, though this was most likely augmented by her use of the Halum school.

Body Features

According to record, Saera was said to be relatively unremarkable in terms of her body. Her frame seemed to be built to hold a large amount of weight on her upper body, yet such weight never came to be.

Facial Features

Generally, almost in spite of the unremarkable nature of her body, her face was described as unearthly beautiful and angelic, similar to descriptions of her brother, Gjalva. Although, it was also said that Saera nearly never emoted, save for extremely rare circumstances.

Identifying Characteristics

Other than her resemblance to her twin brother, Gjalva, and the perceived beauty in her face, she seemed to be quite uninteresting in terms of features.

Physical quirks

Was described as preferring the left-hand. She tended to walk with the aid of a staff she carried on her person at all times, despite her having no need to do so.

Special abilities

Saera was known for her mythical healing abilities and extensive use of the Halum school, capable of healing wounds and improving the fighting prowess of her allies simultaneously.

Apparel & Accessories

Said to prefer bottom robes, topped with a sleeveless, shoulder-less top. She had a single earring on her left ear shaped like a single blue teardrop encased in gold, which is the polar match of the earring her brother wears on his right.

Specialized Equipment

She carried an ornately carved staff constructed of what seemed to be petrified wood at first, though on closer inspection was merely common stone, topped with a yellow crystal composed of Maijurium.

Mental characteristics

Personal history

According to recovered records, Saera was the primary doctor and healer for the militia on the underground island where she and Gjalva made their home. During such times, she spent hours upon hours tending to the wounded that came back from the demonic fronts, learning to apply her trade and eventually coming to rely on the Halum school for treating especially vicious wounds. Through this hands-on training, she eventually honed her magical studies on specificity, and became the greatest healer known to all of Alore. And when it came time for her and her twin brother Gjalva to heed the call of destiny, they went and joined with Tyrra and Ysrai to plan for The Reclamation.

Morality & Philosophy

Saera was known to be logical and calculating, and nearly always had an answer for every dilemma. Like Ysrai, she had a motherly kindness to her which often sent her across the battle-field to the aid of another, often to her own detriment. Though, even when she had lost limbs, she would care for others before herself. She also had an understanding of both technological and magical means of healing wounds, which would manifest later in her nation's acceptance of both technology and magic.

It forms a directory based on the @ symbol when you're writing the article. For instance, if you want to reference another completed article in the one you're working on currently, type the "@" symbol, then generally the first three letters of the article you want to corelate and it will show up in a dropdown list.
